iPad: A Competely Spurious Review
So. The iPad. It’s finally here. We’ve all waited for a useful tablet, and it’s all we could have ever hoped it would be. While there’s no question it will bring about another techie revolution just like the iPhone and iPod before it, let’s break down just what is so new about it. Going to the coffee shop to read? The iBook store allows you to download E-Books right to the device! Casually browsing the web from the couch? The large screen with it’s bright colors are just wonderful. While some people have complained about it’s inability to multitask, aren’t we all suffering from information overload? One thing at a time people. This is Steve Job’s way of saying: “You’re working too hard. Kick back. Relax.” I for one completely agree. What use is productivity if you’re stressed out? The iPad truly makes computing personal. You feel like it was made just for you. I don’t want to bore you with a lot of geek-speak, but let’s take a look at the specifications: It’s got a blazing fast 1ghz processor (almost twice as fast as an iPhone 3gs!) and a “resolution” of 1024×768, over twice as many pixels as an iPod Touch! But I haven’t even gotten to the best part yet. The price. It’s only $499! That’s only about half the cost of the cheapest Macbook! Don’t listen to all the criticism, you need one of these. Delay on this one folks and pretty soon you’ll be the only one without one. And we wouldn’t want that, would we?
Disclaimer: I don’t have an iPad, and i probably won’t ever buy one, as it doesn’t meet any of my computing needs. This is less Apple hate and more satire on hysteria.
